Before I summarize I'd like to apologize to Jay L. again if I offended him

As for my question here are my conclusions .

them both on the same machine . -> this is true for internal dns and a HUGE

2.those who said dns NIS is o.k. in most cases were running both the master
NIS and dns server on the same host mainly because of convenience .
I will set up the dns as a stand alone machine .
